Impending free agent WR Marvin Jones said he will not accept a "hometown discount."
"I'd like to be back, but at the same time I am a free agent – no hometown discount, definitely not – but I'm a free agent," Jones told NFL Media prior to the Super Bowl. "It wouldn't be good for me not to test the waters a little bit. So it's just an exciting process." Poised to be the top free agent receiver available, it does not make sense for Jones to accept less money to play second fiddle to A.J. Green for the next several seasons. Jones should land himself a nice contract and potentially a No. 1 job this offseason. Feb 9 - 10:13 AM

ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein believes impending free agent Marvin Jones could be Detroit's top free-agent target if Calvin Johnson retires.

With Alshon Jeffery extremely likely to stay in Chicago, Jones is the top receiver available in a weak class. Detroit could also look to the draft to help replace Johnson, but top prospect Laquon Treadwell will be long gone by the time they draft at No. 16 overall. Replacing Johnson was always going to be difficult, but the lack of talent available both in the draft and free agency will make the task almost impossible.

ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss believes impending free agent WR Marvin Jones could interest New England.

Even if Brandon LaFell and Danny Amendola stick around, the Patriots are desperate for a downfield threat. Jones could fill that role, but he may be priced out of the Patriots' range in a weak receiver class. Jones could also get interest from ex-Bengals coordinator and new Browns coach Hue Jackson. Jones caught 65 passes for 816 yards and four touchdowns under Jackson last season.

Marvin Jones caught 4-of-7 targets for 32 yards in the Bengals' Wild Card loss to the Steelers.

Jones made an impressive sideline catch on the second drive of the game and converted a fourth down with a nine-yard grab on the Bengals' final touchdown drive, but overall it was another underwhelming performance. Despite staying healthy, Jones caught just four touchdowns and did not record a single 100-yard game. Once a high-ceiling player, the expanding number of weapons in the Bengals offense rendered Jones inconsistent in 2015. He's headed for free agency and has a chance to land a gig that comes with an increased role.
Jan 10 - 1:30 AM

Marvin Jones (hamstring) has been removed from the injury report.

It confirms he didn't have any setbacks last week. Jones will be healthy for Saturday's game, but is the No. 3 option behind A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert.
Jan 6 - 4:20 PM

Marvin Jones caught 5-of-5 targets for 38 yards in the Bengals' Week 17 win over the Ravens.

Jones and A.J. Green each saw five targets to lead the team on Sunday, as the Bengals pretty much coasted right by the Ravens. With Tyler Eifert back from his concussion, there just aren't a ton of balls for Jones, though the Wild Card matchup next weekend at home against the Steelers is a tasty one for all Bengals pass catchers. At the end of the regular season, Jones has a 65-816-4 receiving line in his contract year.
Jan 3 - 11:50 PM

Marvin Jones (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 17.

He practiced fully on Friday. The Bengals are also getting Tyler Eifert back from his concussion. With the exception of Andy Dalton (finger surgery), the Bengals' passing attack will be near full strength against the Ravens.
Jan 1 - 2:23 PM

Marvin Jones (hamstring) remained limited on Thursday.

Back-to-back practices suggest Jones should be able to suit up, but with the playoffs only one week away, perhaps the Bengals will exercise caution with their No. 2 receiver against the Ravens.

Marvin Jones (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday’s practice.

It’s a day-to-day injury. Jones will be updated Thursday.
Wed, Dec 30, 2015 06:34:00 PM

Marvin Jones caught 3-of-7 targets for 33 yards in the Bengals' Week 16 loss to the Broncos on Monday night.

Jones made a couple nice grabs on the sideline, particularly one on the opening drive that moved the chains and contributed to A.J. Green's eventual five-yard touchdown. Jones has been up-and-down all year with the Bengals having so many offensive weapons. He'll be a WR3 next week against the Ravens.
Tue, Dec 29, 2015 12:42:00 AM

Marvin Jones caught 4-of-6 targets for 89 yards in the Bengals' Week 15 win over San Francisco.

Jones' outlook got a slight bump when A.J. Green (back/rest) exited early, though he still only came away with six targets. The Bengals appeared to consciously rest Green in a game they knew they could win without him, and they did. With Green likely to resume being a full-time player, Jones will have a much tougher test against Denver in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 08:40:00 PM

Marvin Jones caught 6-of-8 targets for 61 yards in the Bengals' Week 14 loss to the Steelers.

The Bengals' No. 2 receiver didn't make any real notable plays outside of a 23-yard catch. With Andy Dalton suffering a fractured thumb in the loss, Jones' value will likely take a hit with A.J. McCarron under center. However, Jones would get a boost if Tyler Eifert (concussion) misses time.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 05:56:00 PM

Marvin Jones secured 5-of-5 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' Week 13 win over the Browns.

Scoreless since Week 6, Jones finally rediscovered pay dirt on a 21-yard connection delivered by Andy Dalton on a beautiful throw down the right sideline. Jones beat "Charles Gaines" on the play. Jones is always a volatile WR3 option, and his projection was boosted Sunday by the absence of Tyler Eifert (neck). Jones will remain a boom-bust play in Week 14 against Pittsburgh.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 04:10:00 PM

Marvin Jones absorbed three of five targets for 25 yards and rushed once for 30 yards in the Bengals' Week 12 win over the Rams.

Jones didn’t have his name called often on Sunday, though he may have been involved in the game’s most exciting play. He followed his blocks to a gorgeous 30-yard run on a double reverse in the second quarter. With the game well in hand, the Bengals only attempted 10 second-half passes. Jones should be more involved next week against the Browns.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 04:57:00 PM

Marvin Jones (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 12.

He practiced fully Thursday and Friday and will start versus St. Louis.
